Inheriting the cosmetic counter: Heiress Limited Edition edp by Paris Hilton...

“Heiress is such a great scent and one of my personal favorites. It’s playful and fun with a touch of  sophistication! This limited edition fragrance is the perfect go to scent with the super cute bottle that’s so festive with red crystals. Just looking at it will make you feel just like an heiress yourself!” - Paris HIlton
It seems like forever ago (October 2015) that I read that Parlux would be releasing a limited edition version of the Paris Hilton perfume Heiress in honor of the original's tenth anniversary; the original Heiress perfume had just been released one of the first times I went to NYC where I remember buying it in Macy's and getting a free travel bag (with wheels!), lotion & a ton of free samples, so I wanted to buy this new edition to remind me of my fun-filled holiday. As luck would have it my mother and sister were in NYC when Paris Hilton was and said to be releasing this limited edition version (late February/early March 2016), however they failed to find the perfume anywhere. And all throughout 2016 I'd ask everyone I knew who was traveling abroad if they would mind looking for this perfume in the Duty Free stores, but no-one ever found it.

Fast forward a bit; I was stuck at home and bored over the new year and absent-mindedly did yet another Google search for the Heiress limited edition release - and found it on The  Perfume Shop's UK site (link at the end of my review). And so it is now time to buy it and see just how the fragrance has held up over time... And let's also see if it has a slightly different composition, like the limited edition version of the original Paris Hilton perfume did.
